Truth or Fake

Truth is stranger than fiction

Especially in this day

What is seen and heard might just be

Just an elaborate play

.

Sensation gets attention

Excitement, blood, chaos

The mundane—the plain old truth, though

Barely gets a reaction

.

The nicest people might be nice

The most charming you could meet

Or that could be a distraction

To sweep you off your feet

This image may be subject to copyright

A free gift here and there

Most understanding and considerate

Or perhaps more con than kindness

Once realised, it could be late

.

Seeing is believing, they say

But how do you trust your sight?

When rehearsed performances abound

What’s wrong can seem so right

.

Test and prove everything

Make no assumptions

And even after removing all doubt

Check again, you could be wrong
